Post CCT Coloproctology Fellowships – A joint venture by ACPGBI and RCSEng

Posted 13 May 2019 in

The ACPGBI and RCS Eng are looking for Trusts to host post CCT Fellowships, throughout the UK. These Fellowships should offer training beyond that is required for certification at CCT and will be invaluable in providing higher level special interest training in complex areas.

It is intended that these Fellowships will be jointly accredited by the ACPGBI and RCS Eng.

  • It is proposed that up to 7 ACPGBI/ RCS Eng Fellowships will be awarded within the following specialist interest areas:
Advanced pelvic malignancy x2 posts

Advanced Pelvic floor surgery x1 post
Intestinal failure x1 post
TEMS and advanced therapeutic colonoscopy x1 post
Minimally invasive surgery for rectal cancer – laparoscopic/robotic/TaTME x1 post
  • ACPGBI will fund the RCS Eng administrative costs of these dual badged Fellowships which would receive accreditation for 3 years in the first instance.
  • The salary costs of the Fellowship post are to be met by the Trust.

APPLICATION

  • Trusts from across the whole of the UK are invited by the ACPGBI to apply to host an ACPGBI/RCS Eng Fellow for post CCT specialty training.
  • Seven posts across the specialist areas will be chosen and Trusts awarded their status by the ACPGBI following a formal process of application.
